To fans of early horror, director F.W. Murnau is best known for ‘Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens,’ his chilling 1922 vampire film, inspired by Bram Stoker’s famous novel. However, his equally impressive ‘Faust’ is often overlooked, despite some remarkable visuals, solid acting, a truly sinister villain, and an epic tale of love, loss and evil. The story concerns Faust (Gösta Ekman), an old and disheartened alchemist who forms a pact with Satan’s evil demon, Mephisto (Emil Jannings). As God and the Devil wage a war over Earth, the two opposing powers reach a tentative agreement: the entire fate of Mankind will rest on the soul of Faust, who must redeem himself from his selfish deeds before the story is complete.
